Don`t worry if you can't print the car pass, some have had trouble with it but its just an optional thing to help speed up getting on site.

Yes I agree a great event well organised and thanks to all involved.
Although a smaller turn out than the AWS's it meant we got the chance to try a few more events and was far less hectic.

Firstly I`d like to say thanks to everyone who came, its the competitors who make the event what it is and I think it went very well.
There were some good fights and games and all at a nice pace, I think the the football was one of my favourite tournaments.
I`ve learnt quite a bit about running an event, one of the main ones is that teamwork is essential.
Some of you know that I have been offered a better venue for the next event which will be in Hinckley, I`m hoping for a summer one and will confirm things when I`ve had a good look at the robot calendar. 'Ant Bake' here we come :D

That sounds like a great idea! It would be up for that.

On a side note: Does anyone know if and when the videos will be uploaded to youtube? It's just that my camera died near the end of the main comp and my mum said she might of missed the start of my first fight with QwejiboOM.

Thanks

Dan

Thanks John for a fun event, it was nice being able to do things like the robot football again. I'm hoping this will be the start of more people volunteering to run non-AWS events :).

Congratulations to everyone who won something!

I'd also like some feedback from anyone who watched the stream - How was the sound and video quality? Was there any delay between the two? What do you think could've been done better?

Thanks in advance!

Sound and video was fine for me. Only real problems are ones I see on nearly all streams, occasionally it will drop out or slow down. The video went once but I could still get sound? I think.

Pretty good overall and it was pleasant enough to watch (except when the adverts made me miss some of the best fights :P )

Looked like a good event, sad I missed it.
